Seeds We Sow… a post about grief

By Katie Nix
The following has been written over the course of a week or mulled over for the last three years or so. I am not the best of writers, so it is likely jumbled and I use way too many commas, but if you feel so inclined to read about how the promises of the God of the Bible has brought me through, please read.
Seeds of discontent or seeds of plentiful harvest? (I’ve been in the gospel of Mark thinking about seeds a lot lately)

Easter Week

Here is one great reason to love homeschooling…
This week we were able to stop for a few days and talk about Jesus. We focused on Easter and what it really is. Silas, at two, even got in on the action. We did a magnet page that states, “He is Risen!” What understanding little ones have. A few times a day I hear, “Jesus died on the cross for our sins” in his little voice. With Peter, who will be seven next week, we went a bit more in depth. We read Luke 19 and talked about what he discussed at Sunday School. He had a great question and so we went on to Psalm 22. To have such depth of scripture in a school day is a blessing. To have a boy that comprehends these truths and has a thirst for them is beyond a blessing. What a great reminder to me of the task before me. My little ones are a beautiful ministry to enjoy and pour my heart into. I love my job.
